Most Popular Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2015 Models in Social Media

The Sports Illustrated Swim 2015 edition has been published online on Monday. Over 20 of the world's hottest models show off the latest swimwear in exotic locations. Like in the past 50 years, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition is a pop culture highlight. Which swimsuit models stand out this year? We have the list.

The 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition has launched online on Monday.  Sports Illustrated selected Hannah Davis as the 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover model, but she is not the most talked about model in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2015 Edition. 

Top 10 Most Popular Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2015 Models

It is actually an athlete that scores the most shares in social media. UFC fighter Ronda Rousey bedazzles in her tough as nail bikini photos. This is very surprising. My explanation is that the contrast of being a UFC fighter and posing in swimwear is triggering the huge popularity for Rousey's photos. 

Hannah Davis is not even in the top 10 most popular Swimsuit models in social media. She was the hot topic before the release of the 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition, but now she got steam-rolled by the models featured inside the Swim 2015 magazine.

Following Ronda Rousey in social media attention is model Hannah Ferguson. She shares the first name with the SI Swim 2015 cover model. Hannah Ferguson is not a very well known model. Nobody cared yet to make her a wikipedia page. So why is she so popular on social media?

My explanation are the hot photos she has in her 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit spread especially with one photo standing out. The shot shows Ferguson in a Milk Shake Bar with an essentially bare butt. The image is even too hot for us to publish on I4U News. See it in the SI Swimsuit gallery. See below a less racy one of Hannah Ferguson.

Chrissy Teigen ranks third in social media after the first hours of the publication of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2015 edition online. Chrissy Teigen is a staple in the SI Swimsuit edition. Her 2015 photos are hot and she is a famous American model. It is no wonder she ranks in the top three.

Emily Ratajkowski ranks fourth in social media attention. She is a geek favorite and knows how to show off her assets.
